Christopher Pasinski, Owner & Tax Preparer
Buffalo Tax Service, LLC was founded by Christopher Pasinski to serve people in and around the Western New York Area. Earning his degree at The University at Buffalo, along with his experience in studying taxes from a very young age in his families’ business, made him well prepared to understand the ever-changing tax code.
Christopher’s 20+ years of experience has ensured his clients receive accurate returns and excellent support for any tax matters that may arise for them. His original focus, and the bulk of his initial clientele, was related to the transportation industry (specifically Railroad Conductors, Engineers, & Truck Drivers). Since this is a highly specialized area of the tax code, he learned how to dig through the IRS publications and Internal Revenue Code to find the best deductions and methods for his clients to ensure they always get the best possible result. Although Christopher’s expertise started with Tax Laws related to the transportation industry, his knowledge extends to every corner of the Tax Code making him well qualified for every type of tax.
